While the game IS fun, and the art style is one that I enjoyed, for the price it is not worth it. It costs about half the price of a movie ticket, and you can beat it in less that 20 minutes. I in-depth played it (Stopping to read all the cards, payed extra attention to the environments, and tried to explore best I could, etc.) AND played through a second time on commentary mode, only to find myself clocked in at a little less than an hour. I wish the game were a lot longer and offered a lot more. It's a great story, but for 5 dollars you should just watch it on youtube.

AUDIO: Neat                                                                 AESTHETIC: Artsy
MEMORABILITY: Reasonable                                 WORTH: Serious Discount

PROS: The world looks nice, it's curiosity-piquing. I found the characters to be somewhat memorable, if only in role rather than name. The story is interesting once it's broken down for you or played through multiple times. It's the Momento style of story-telling, not just a random series of events that some are making it out to be. There is a fleshed out tale here that is admittedly poignant, and in a very interesting setting.

CONS: My overall time played was accrued through more than one playthrough. It is VERY short. For having such an interesting story, it's poorly told. The artsy factor actually detracts from the experience in this aspect. It would have been much better if the story to have been expanded upon, but I feel that's not what they were going for, for the sake of brevity. Unfortunately, a lack of any consequence makes it little more than a walking simulator that blows right by over the course of ten minutes or so.

OVERALL: This game is not worth five USD, simple as that. Is it a travesty upon gaming? A sin that cannot be redeemed? Is it the worst thing that has ever stolen the money of players everywhere? No. It's just an overpriced art game, so calm down and stop giving it so much hate for the sake of cheap comedy. This loss of five dollars is not worth stabbing your grandmother and threatening the developer over but exercise caution in buying it.

I'm the type of guy that will wholeheartedly recommend a short game if it has a good story. Even if the price tag is sometimes a little over.

Year Walk, To the Moon, Brothers: A tale of two sons, Limbo, Deadlight, Thomas was alone, Spec Ops: The Line.

The list goes on. All short games. All have great stories. All I would recommend.

I would not recommend this game.

I don't want to sound like an ♥♥♥♥♥♥♥♥ but it feels like this game was made by some hipster who wanted to make an art piece out of a game. It didn't work.

I really feel that all the positive comments about this game are from people who are trying to make it clear that they support innovation and creativity in video games. That's great, but this "game" really isn't.

As I said before, length isn't usually an issue for me. However, I've played 20 minutes of this game and I've completed it three times. That's ridiculous. It could have the best story ever told ever by anyone ever and it would still be ridiculous that I can complete it three times in just over 20 minutes.

And that's what's worse. You watch the trailer and it says at the end

"Tells a better story in 13 minutes than most games do in 13 hours." - PC Gamer

Now, I like PC Gamer, but that is such a stupid statement that it's practically a lie. Its actually a really cheesy, sub-par romantic story. I won't spoil it, just in case you refuse to listen to me. I'm not that much of a ♥♥♥♥.

And above everything else, it is BORING. You'd be surprised at how bored you can get in a game that takes less than 10 minutes to complete. The story is boring and the gameplay is boring. At least in Dear Esther and Gone Home, the story was good and it lasted longer than 10 minutes.

Walk around for 10 minutes. Engage in a plot that will leave you bored and with no attachment whatsoever to the characters. You've completed the game! Wasn't that great?! That'll be £4 please.

An intensely surreal time, difficult to recommend at any kind of price-range given how abbreviated the experience is but still manages to be an interesting take on the "games as art" bandwagon. Can't be recommended as a purchase but worth watching a youtube playthrough of.

Thirty Flights of Loving 9 / 10

A five minute Quentin Tarantino game/movie;
An interactive movie trailer between Pumpkin and Honey Bunny;

Yeah no sh*t - this lasts only five minutes; so I played it ten times for a total of 50 minutes hoping to get some Steam Cards.... (warning - did not work : p)

Do you make games? You figure out how to fit something like this into your game as an Interlude and Bingo you have a Hit within a Hit; hilarious and intense potential.

Check this out....

Looked promising and interesting when I saw the screenshots. Finally got it for half-price in the sales (IDK £4 seemed a bit steep) so I was really excited when I got to play it. I started it up and was like "Ooh this is interesting..." and then again two minutes later "Um I don't really get it but it's going somewhere right..."

And then five minutes later it was over. FIVE MINUTES OF GAMEPLAY (Not inc. the 15 minute game you can get for free from the intertwebz). At half-price it still wasn't worth it. Nowhere near!

Potentially an interesting concept/ story, rushed into a tiny, meaningless prototype thingy.

At the very least this game should be free.

Tl;dr: I want my £1.99 back.

Ce jeu est la suite de Gravity Bone, qui est inclus dans le menu principal :
- Si vous hésitez à dépenser vos sous pour un jeu qui se termine en moins d'une heure, Gravity Bone est disponible gratuitement sur le site de Blendo Games. Jouez-y et voyez si vous avez envie de retourner dans cet univers barré.
- Si vous avez acheté Thirty Flights of Loving, pensez à jouer à Gravity Bone avant de commencer !

Pour la petite histoire : ces deux jeux sont les épisodes 6 et 7 des aventures de Citizen Abel, des mods pour Quake 2 et Half-Life (The Puppy Years), trouvables sur le site de Blendo Games. Mais vous pouvez vous en passer ; Gravity Bone et Thirty Flights of Loving sont des histoires indépendantes et infiniment mieux ficelées que ces mods.

Une arnaque grossière. Pour l'inventivité narrative certains seraient prêts à pardonner beaucoup de choses, il en reste que la durée de vie et le contenu ne justifient pas le fait que ce jeu soit payant; Gravity Bone avait au moins quelque chose à raconter, même si ce n'était pas beaucoup. Là, on se retrouve avec un jeu certes prenant et intrigant mais tellement court et vide qu'il ne présente que très peu d'intérêt.
C'est peut-être un jeu inspirant, mais il ne faut surtout pas l'acheter; attendez un bundle.

Absolument "WTF!", mais artistiquement mémorable. C'est un beau tour de force que de montrer de façon grand-public à quel point le jeu vidéo peut nous raconter une histoire de façon très originale. Un peu cher, evidemment, mais tellement sympathique !

Thirty Flights of Loving is an indie art game which I found short, obtuse and largely uninteresting.

Speaking as someone who loved Dear Esther, and even Thirty Flights' developer's previous game ('Gravity Bone', which is included here as a free extra), I found myself thoroughly bewildered by Thirty Flights of Loving.

I was bewildered by the sloppy non-linear storytelling. The game hops, skips, and leaps, with all the grace of a big rig in a tutu. I've played through the whole game and read several summaries to make sure I wasn't missing anything, but even once I made sense of the story being told (a by-the-books tale of a criminal caper gone wrong), it didn't connect with me at all.

I was bewildered by the lack of flow within the gameplay. For such a short game, I was astonished to find myself stuck on at least two occasions. Normally I'd be the last person to call for such handholding tactics as blatant signposting or railroading of the player, but in this case the current state is completely at odds with the intended purpose. The developer obviously wants to tell a story, but I found it a trial just to get to the next part. This is not to mention the pointless interactions in the game which sometimes seem to serve no purpose whatsoever.

I was bewildered by the end. It came out of nowhere, and left me with the strongest feeling of 'is that it?' I think I've ever encountered with a game. I spent more time in the options menu than I did with the game itself. I wouldn't mind if it was some kind of masterpiece of storytelling, but it just wasn't.

Most of all, I was and am bewildered by the praise this game has garnered. 88% (at the time of writing) on Metacritic. Critical acclaim. Fans on the forums defending it to the hilt. I saw similar reactions to Dear Esther (which, as I said earlier, I felt deserved every bit of its praise), but I genuinely cannot understand it in this case.

Maybe I'm missing something huge here, but Thirty Flights of Loving was not an enjoyable, enlightening, or otherwise entertaining experience for me. I respect any developer who attempts to tell stories through games, but this feels like one of the more unfinished, unfocused efforts that I have played. Not recommended.

Please visit the dev's page here and download the free game "Gravity Bone". http://blendogames.com/
You have time. The game is 15 minutes from start to finish.

If you like Gravity Bone, you will like Thirty Flights of Loving.
If you do not like Gravity Bone, you will not like Thirty Flights of Loving.

5 euro, are you ♥♥♥♥ing high? So glad I got this in the humble bundle and not actually on steam, I would never have felt so cheated on steam than if I had actually payed five euro for this. I could buy four burgers at mcdonalds for a euro less and get a longer lasting and more enjoyable experience. Get out with your "It's art man you don't get it" bull sh*t. This is lazy and boring. Unless you are into pretending you're high and mighty for liking some obscure "modern video game art" then I'd avoid this. It can literally be finished in less than ten minutes. Definitely not worth the money. I would only recommend playing this if you wished to see what's up with the mixed reviews and if you literally have total free time with nothing better to do, and I mean nothing. Even stabbing myself in the finger would have been a more enjoyable experience, at least that would have envoked some sort of emotional response other than utter boredom.

This is the shortest 'game' I have ever played on Steam. I took about 20 minutes, and I did it all again to make sure I wasn't missing something. Seriously, when it ended, I simply couldn't believe it. It's shorter than most flash games.

However, even if you ingore its ridiculous length, you still have the fact that it's barely interactive enough to even be called a 'game' in the first place. You just run from one area to another and things happen around you, to an extent, but nothing much happens to you. In short, you are not even involved in this tiny title's escapades. merely a biwildered bystander.

Luckily, I got this in some bundle or other so it didn't cost me very much. For the poor shmucks who actually payed good money for it (15 dollars for 15 minutes (or so) 'fun' .... I feel genuinely sorry for them.
